Silence is usually the order of the day when I’m alone. I am not usually one to play music while online or in the background at home though I don’t mind it at all if the husband puts it on. It’s just not normally something I think of during the day. The conclusion I just came to is that to me playing music while with other people seems a bit rude unless it’s a very low volume, otherwise we have to yell at each other to have a conversation. A bit Grandmotherish of me I suppose but there it is. If someone wanted to hear what I have to say they wouldn’t be playing music loudly. Of course, this does not apply if we are in a club or bar.
Since the husband went to visit his kids earlier this month I have started playing music on the computer while I blog, facebook, etc. In fact, when my husband came home he was rather surprised to hear music coming from my room.
I have always been all over the place with music appreciation. Pop, Heavy Metal, Grunge, Electronica, Classical, Techno, Jazz, Rock, Indie, Chant/Meditation, Southern Rock, Cajun/Creole/Zydeco. The genres I tend to avoid are Country and Rap, and R&B though I like Blues I just don’t tend to put it on.
Internet-radio.com has become a constant companion the last 4 weeks. The first few days I was listening to Dance then moved to Electronica and eventually put on Jazz and am now in my Classical stage. I think I’ll leave the Heavy Metal/Rock for working out and the random day of gaming I get in. I think next in order may be Indie but I’m still enjoying classical for now.
There is a soothing calm that comes from music which until now I think mostly evaded me. Of course, I’m not referring to the harder genres but I reserve those for workouts as stated above oh and they are good for cross country moving too.
